    I think you're on to something. Perhaps it's only a "concrete issue" when it's your sister or aunt or neighbor that is made a second class citizen. Difficult problem.

    •  In general, our biggest problem (0+ / 0-)

      is that our support is "soft" (abstract) whereas our opposition is "hard" (concrete). The majority is generally pro-gay on most issues, but for most of them it's not something that they really care about personally (to the point of expending time, money or effort in support of us). The opposition does tend to take it personally, and is willing to work for their beliefs.
